I would rather not want to see the Daily Press write anything about JMU football ever... JMU has only one loss all season, to a 1-A opponent, and has over a quarter of their players from the 757 and as ALWAYS no love... But hey Tech they got a couple Hampton kids lets suck on their b@!!s a little more, they're lucky JMU didn't play them this year because Tech might have ended up with another L

Did you seriously just compare the lack of coverage of JMU to the DP having "no love" for Phoebus? Last I checked there were TONS of articles/pictures/etc on the Phoebus game - in fact...I believe EVERY game Phoebus played this year was the Super Bowl in the eyes of the DP. JMU NEVER gets coverage in the DP because, as Nick Matthews says, the Hampton Roads area just "doesn't care about JMU" when it contains the 3rd largest JMU alumni contingent next to DC and Richmond.

It's interesting how they think that I-A teams that are going to bowl games are hitting the books and studying in their time before the bowl games. Yeah, they finals but come on, why would this be any different that the rest of the academic season.

Rodney Landers from Virginia Beach is one of the best quarterbacks in the Country and you won't give the boy a big story. Instead you write about exams and the playoffs. The Daily Press would be doing themselves a favor if they got rid of the columnists they have now and hire some that are not so partial to UVA (a losing team,) Virginia Tech and William and Mary. William and Mary complained about not making the playoffs; they could not begin to compete with the teams that were in the playoffs. Way above their caliber.
